I started some modeling classes when I was thirteen, for a reason other than the actual want to. My mentality at the time was that modeling was only meant for loose women and the very blond ditzy girls, which I was not. I had started them in strong dislike but then when I started getting the photos taken and learning to do my own makeup I started to like it, but not enough to continue it. Because of the style most modeling agencies seemed to portray. I wanted something more artistic something more like me which I never thought existed. Till I picked up Gothic Beauty magazine and browsed through all of the Models with an Edge. Soon enough, I found an icon which I wanted to be like and a few inspirations. Dita Von Teese mainly, Drastique, Audrey Hepburn and Bettie Paige. I found them all beautiful and unique. I got more experience into modeling by having small photo shoots with friends, and began to broadcast myself through the internet and such. Within the past year, I have gotten my start with a few photographers who have helped tremendously.
